Annie’s Hook & Needle Club kit #3 — Learn a Stitch Dishcloths

Image

 

The mail truck brought a wonderful package today — my next kit for the “Annie’s Hook & Needle Club”. In month three of the club I will be crocheting dishcloths. One can always use dishcloths; either for yourself or as a small gift for a friend.

The kit came with three skeins of Sugar ‘n Cream cotton yarn in the following beautiful colors of Yellow, Country Green and Tea Rose. The stitches you would learn are the eyelet, seed and rib stitches, all of which I have already done, but it will be nice to review them.  All the dishcloths measurements are 9 x 9″ and are done with a F hook.

The hardest thing for me about the this club is not starting the new projects the day they arrive. I need to finish my friends birthday gift by Sunday so these will have to wait. There just does not seem to be enough time in the day to do all the crocheting I would love to do.

I hear my responsibilities call now; so until next time keep those hooks flying.

About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

  4. Rose: It is nice to see one else in the club. I have really been enjoying the club so far. I am in my fifth month. When many months are you into it?

    • Rose says:

      I am in my 4th month but my 5th month kit should be here soon! I knit them so its pretty nice to see the crochet you do. I also get the Mary Maxim kits of the month. They are very impressive! Their projects are slightly more advanced. I love them both though!

  5. My 5th kit should arrive by Friday. We must have joined around the same time, (January) it will be nice to know someone that is in the same club. So far I have really enjoyed the projects. I did not know Mary Maxim had a club also, I will have to check into it. Thanks a lot for sharing.

    This is in reference to kit 3, dishcloths. I am having a difficult time with the eye let stitch, cross over. I need picture or video

  7. Lynn, I am so sorry you are having difficultly with this pattern. I did write a tutorial on this stitch (Cross Over Long dc). You can find the link under Speciality Stitches. It does have lots of pictures – let me know if it helped.

    • Lynn says:

      I don’t see the specialty stitches. I saw pictures, no video. Do you have one?

      • I could post one by next Tuesday, if that will help.

      • Lynn says:

        Thank you. The instructions have two different stitches. 1. Front cross over stitch. It states working loosely in front of 3 DC just madr, yo, insert hook front to back through the skipped single crochet and then bring hook to front over the sc (hook is in front of the 3 dc,) yo and draw lp through the sc and complete the double crochet.
        2. Back cross over stitch. Working loosely in back of 3 dc just made, yo, insert hook from front to back through the sc, with hook in back, yo and draw lp through sc and complete the double dc. Stitch 1. Has me confused

  8. Lynn says:

  9. Lynn, I am sorry it took so long, but here is the link to the video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo0870qO1qg&feature=em-upload_owner I hope it helps. Have fun crocheting.

    way overpriced… I paid $24 for $4.50 worth of cotton yarn. 😦 I cancelled my subscription and I’m looking for a new club to order from. I do hope you do not delete this as it it better to be honest about the products so people will know not to waste hard earned money on something like this.

  11. Gingerbread, first of all, good or bad, I never delete comments. I only delete the spam ones. I am sorry you were not happy with your kit. For me it is worth it. I receive the yarn, patterns and notions and because I live a few miles away from a store that sales yarn, I would spend close to that with the amount on gas there and back. My purpose for joining the club was to push my self to branch out into crochet projects I would not have done on my own. The club has done that for me. I have paid for all my kits out of my own pocket. However, the most important thing is not rather you join Annie’s Hook & Needle club, it is that you enjoy what you are crocheting and that you keep those hooks flying.

    P.S. I am planning on joining this club when I completed Annie’s. I do not know any details about it, so you will have do your own research. It is the only other crocheting kit club I am aware of. (http://www.marymaxim.com/gifts/clubs-certificates/crochet-club-of-the-month.html) Mary Maxim. If you know of another one please pass on the information.
